A quality goal from John Sharpe, his first for the Grecians since joining from Manchester City, proved to be enough to ensure that the points went back to Exeter

In what was largely a scrappy game the best work was once again carried out by the Grecians defence, who looked very comfortable when under pressure The pace of Lean Braithwaite often stretched the Lincoln defence and he was inches away from adding to Sharpe's strike in the 61st minute, with a shot that was just too high

The winning goal came after 41 minutes when Sharpa picked the ball up on the halfway line, advanced, and from 20 yards sait a low shot into the net.
